teeming with life! – There could be one hundred billion earth-like planets in our own galaxy. So far, astronomers have detected over 300 of them, and scientists think that many of these could harbor at least simple forms of life?just like we think we have found on Mars. Have (or will) any of these planets evolve complex life forms (like us) in the future?
BBC News quotes researcher Alan Boss as saying, “Not only are they probably habitable but they probably are also going to be inhabited, but I think that most likely the nearby ‘Earths’ are going to be inhabited with things which are perhaps more common to what Earth was like three or four billion years ago.”
